Hiroshi Sugimoto

BIOGRAPHY

1948-

Hiroshi Sugimoto is regarded for extreme technical proficiency rooted in conceptualism.  His photographs are “time exposed.”  In Theatres, the film is exposed over the movie‘s duration so that the audience and movie are lit only by the projector.  Portraits depicts wax figures in old masters ambience, a replica of a replica that satisfies Sugimoto‘s affinity with Duchamp multiples.
